replacing the power rack and got to the last of the 4 fasteners and STRIPPED the damned xmember. My fault, but the fastener FELT like it was not xthreaded. Poll the group- am i better to:

A. Install helicoil and reassemble?
B- Drill through the xmember and fasten with a bolt and nut config?
C- Replace the xmember entirely?
D- tap to the next largest size?

Interested in what yall think.

If you want an X member, there is one on the bottom of my turbo engine. I won't rip you off too badly. Very Happy
